That feeling you have after just waking up. When you’re kind of awake, but not really. More asleep, going through the motions, a little bit angry, grumpy, annoyed, just generally in an unpleasant mood all together. Yes, in that precise moment you are exactly what this particular Mexi-Vocabulario word defines. ¡Modorro!
You probably look a little something like this too.
I used to hate it when my parents would wake me up from a nap to “go do something,” no matter how important it might have been. In those days it seemed like nothing could shake the zombie-like feeling that would always come afterwards. On top of it, my brothers would inevitably find a way to get on my nerves every single time too. There I’d be, yelling and screaming, throwing out my arms aimlessly and as if though they were lifeless really, still not fully awake, but awake enough. Just enough to be able to fight off my brothers in defense of my own pereza and lack of interest in joining the rest of the world going on around me at that precise moment… and sometimes for at least half an hour afterwards.
Okay, so sometimes the feeling would last all day!
These days, though, I don’t get modorro much anymore. Hmmm… is that a sign? Is it normal? No sé. But I do like waking up Edgar now myself and watching his modorro reactions. It’s kind of entertaining honestly.
We all have to get our kicks somehow, right?
I don’t even think he minds much …anymore, LOL!
I’m always on the hunt for new mexi-vocabulario.

Writer’s Disclaimer: When I say mexi-vocabulario I don’t necessarily mean these words are exclusively Mexican, or only used by Mexicans. This is simply an expression of how they were introduced to me in our Mexican Spanish.
